Client Advisory Bulletin: Search Status

We have seen a large increase in the number of lockdowns and the adherence to “social distancing” to curb the spread of the COVID-19 virus. This is causing delays in the finalisation of searches, as some searches remain temporarily unavailable. The current searches that are unavailable are updated on this bulletin.

We are committed to maintaining business delivery and ensuring you are receiving the highest quality of service with minimal disruption while ensuring the health and safety of our staff and the wider community. THANK YOU for your patience and ongoing support during this period.

If you have any questions during this time, please contact your client case manager, engagement manager or email us via help@sterlingrisq.com

* Expect turnaround delays across all Europe countries
